Overview

Abbot Vonier begins his Christological Trilogy with "The Personality of Christ," a meditation on how Our Lord, while remaining a divine person, brings salvation to humanity precisely through his human actions.

This illuminating study is marked by a memorably clear explanation of the meaning of "person" in the theology of St. Thomas Aquinas, and a perceptive Biblical study of Christ's acts and relationships within human society. Vonier shows that much of the unique, dramatic character of the gospels derives from the distance between Christ's infinite, divine personality and the finite, human personalities that he touches and elevates.

"The Personality of Christ" is followed by "Christ the King of Glory," and "The Victory of Christ."

"These are no mere exegetical treatises for the trained philosopher; their common purpose is to strengthen devotion, not by appealing to sentiment but by adapting to modern needs the classical exposition of the Fathers and Scholastics, especially those of his great Master in Divinity-St. Thomas Aquinas. The style however is clear and free from technical terms." -The Irish Monthly
